FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) - Gartrell Johnson ran for two touchdowns and caught a touchdown pass, leading Colorado State to a 42-34 victory over Georgia Southern on Saturday.

Johnson finished with 136 yards on the ground. Caleb Hanie completed 13-of-16 passes for 244 yards and two touchdowns, and Damon Morton caught four passes for 100 yards and a score for Colorado State (2-9).

It was the fifth time this season the Rams have had a 100-yard rusher and a receiver reach 100 yards.

Colorado State hasn't lost to a team in the Football Championship Subdivision, formerly known as Division I-AA, since being beaten 37-34 by Idaho on September 12th, 1992.

Quarterback Jayson Foster ran for 195 yards on 27 carries and scored three touchdowns for the Eagles. He also threw for 107 yards for Georgia Southern (7-4).

It was the 18th career 100-yard game and 22nd multiple touchdown game for Foster. Johnson had 108 yards rushing and three touchdowns by halftime as Colorado State built a 28-3 lead. The Rams, who amassed 365 yards of total offense in the first two quarters, punted on their first possession and reached the end zone on their next four.
